Prize Claims and recent cheque processing changes by Scotiabank Barbados
HOW TO CLAIM YOUR PRIZE
Following a recent announcement by Scotiabank Barbados, non-account holders will no longer be able to conduct banking transactions with this institution effective May 18, 2020.
HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOU?
Customers who do not have a Scotiabank account will no longer be able to cash Barbados Lottery cheques through Scotiabank. However, to assist with these changes we have provided the following measures, to reduce hassle and worry.
PRIZE CLAIM MEASURES
. CHEQUE PAYMENT – You can collect your cheque from our office and deposit it to your Credit union account or Bank account at any financial institution.
. DIRECT DEPOSIT – Your prize monies can be deposited directly to your Credit union account or Bank account at any financial institution. Just provide us with your account number and transit number, along with your signed and completed ticket and a valid ID.
CUSTOMERS WITHOUT A BANK ACCOUNT
. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the way in which we all do business, we urgently need to find easier and safer ways to conduct our day to day transactions.
With this in mind, we encourage you now more than ever to take the necessary action towards opening a banking account with any of the various authorized financial institutions.
The Barbados Lottery remains committed towards improving how we do business, as well as keeping our customers and employees protected and informed during this time of precaution and beyond.
